From Personification of Entelechy
So they think I’m merely a pretty face
A stereotype I can’t seem to escape
As I scream from within
WAIT, I have so many talents
While I stay modest
And inwardly focused
Those that love me the most
See my soul
They judge me not
Knowing I will quickly pop off
What the world needs to discover
Please don’t judge a book by its cover
You see me beneath the trees
On a golden dewy autumn night
Lovers quarrel and they fight
Sadness brings her to her knees
He is also melancholy
As both lovers deem to please
He walks out of sight
Both hearts began to break
Both tremor and violently shake
Making their way back to the moonlight
They hold an intoxicating embrace
She missed his beautiful face
He took her hand, as they began
Under the golden moonlight
